The Florida Bar

Standing Committees
Code & Rules Of Evidence

The scope and function of the Code and Rules of Evidence Committee differs from other standing "rules" committees of The Florida Bar because the law of evidence is established by the legislature and codified in the Florida Statutes rather than promulgated as rules of procedure by the Florida Supreme Court. Therefore, the committee does not strictly follow the procedure for amending rules as set forth in Judicial Administration Rule 2.140. Instead, the committee's primary focus is on proposed legislation; rule amendments are proposed only as a technical matter to ensure that the Supreme Court's Rules of Evidence comport with the code, Chapter 90, Florida Statutes.

See the Rules of Procedure page for full text of the rules and any proposed amendments.
